    It's a single unique enchantment called Fiery Soul Trap. Found on this thing at this place.

    And it's pretty much the best low-level enchantment ever!  It always deals a fixed 10 (unmodified) fire damage, no matter how much you lower the magnitude to increase the charges.  A grand soul gem enchant will give this baby hundreds of charges even at unperked Enchanting 15!

    I will definitely have to get that one, and many thanks for the help Matt Feeney, the guide makes more sense now

    OK, I did have a question about the Nexus Raper bow, how can it be created?  The only weapon that I could find that had the Frost/Stamina and Fear enchantment is the Pale Blade, which cannot be disenchanted.  

    Thanks again for the help.

    Yeah, he didn't really do a good job of describing that one.  It's just a frost damage enchantment, which (like all frost spells and damage effects) deals stamina damage as a side effect of the frost damage.

    True, but the fear part would be great, it just doesn't seem to be possible, given that the Pale Blade cannot be disenchanted.  Or you would need 100 in enchant to be able to add two effects, it that how the Nexus Raper is enchanted?

    There's a perk at the end of the Enchanting tree called Extra Effect; it lets you put two enchantments on the same item!  It's pretty awesome since it makes your enchanting twice as powerful the instant you grab it.

    I see that both variations of the build go all the way to the top of the enchantment branch, guess that is how most of the later bows are created, for now (lvl 23) a good frost bow and a burning souls bow will do till I get the skill.

    Just finished another playthrough of this one on my Twitch stream!  I was just making sure STEP would be stable enough for me, so I was on Adept.  It was like a wrecking ball against a bunch of cardboard cutouts.

    Are the two bows supposed to be called Nexus Raper and Flame Raper? Or are they supposed to be Reapers?
